    Nice Ryan!
    I've been "trying" or rather wanting to get into this for the last couple of years.
    (So many things that can distract a person.)

    thanks it took me awhile to start doing it and im not an expert by any means.But Im a good learner.I only have 300 dollars in everything and I thought that wasnt bad.Ill add as I need to.Right above the bench I mounted 2 cabnets with a pad lock.I dont leave all that stuff out I lock it up good cause my garage is where the neighborhood kids get out of the rain or heat of the summer and I didnt want them messing with my stuff.

    Nice set up - that same press sits on my bench right next to its bigger brother the Classic turret. Great machine IMHO.

    Happy reloading!

    Here is a tread that was started. Take a look and you will see some things that we have as setups.

    What does your reloading bench look like

    WELL I CANT GET THIS BLASTED PUTER TO LINK IT. Just look back about 3 pages and you will see the thread. If some one can link it please feel free.

    Oh...you said reloading outfit. I thought this was going to be about clothes fashions. Wanted to know if now we had to be wearing certain clothes to reload.

    Buying reloading stuff is almost as contagious as buying guns---be very careful.

    Nice set up, if I ever get my light in the ceiling & my bench cleaned up, I'll post some picts; heck I never even got my cabinet doors on or bench stained yet.

    Ain't that the truth. I have a hard time deciding on what I really need and what they are just trying to goat ya into buying. Example, after watching a few reloading dvds; I picked up a NECO Gauge, Redding Concentricity Gauge, Sinclair Neck Turner, and a few other related things; over $500 that I'm starting to believe would have been money better spent on other supplies. I guess maybe I'll apply everything, but doubt I'll see much benefit. Lesson learned from this is that one should spend more on brass & bullets than on what might end up being useless equipment.

    Something else, We have a basement, something not common in rural Alaska. It stays cool all summer, 60 degrees not matter that it's 80 outside; it's the permafrost. It's not damp as we have wood stove downstairs, humidity is around 35-40% So I figured that I'd build my reloading bench in one of the spare bedrooms. Well now our kids have all gone off to school and it's like a dungeon down there, too quiet; even the dogs stay upstairs. So I'll eventually be building another bench upstairs I figure.
